Program can be used in many ways. It is preferable that one JudoShiai program is used together with one JudoTimer program for each mat. In this case, JudoShiai program controls all the JudoTimers and the database is centralized.
Network connection between computers is not mandatory, but useful. An example configuration for two competition areas looks as follows:
Create the categories.
Type in the competitors to the JudoShiai program (or import from a text file or from an old tournament database).
Create the categories either manually or use the built in automation.
Place categories on tatamis.
Draw the categories.
Finally you will have a database that contains all the information.
Connect the laptops to an Ethernet network. Use an ordinary switch that contains a DHCP server.
Connect the external displays to the laptops.
Connect the printer to the laptop where you run the JudoShiai program (or print over the network).
Run JudoTimer for each mat.
Run JudoShiai to control the tournament and JudoTimers.
Print the sheets for the competitors and audience.
Configure JudoTimers for each mat.
JudoShiai program sends information about the next matches to the JudoTimers.
Match information is visible in the JudoTimer displays. Also JudoInfos display the match order.
Score the players during the fights.
After the fight the JudoTimer sends the results to the JudoShiai (score, elapsed time, possible hantei result).
JudoShiai program updates the database and sends information about the next match to the scoreboard program and the JudoInfos.
This is repeated until all the fights are done.
JudoShiai program can print the results to a printer, to a file in PDF format, or as a web page.
